    Has anyone noticed on social media more and more former “models” deciding to get fat? I haven’t noticed this as much in men but it seems to be a growing trend in female circles.

    Is this real? Am I going crazy? Is this the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon?

    Mod note: This was originally posted here in a BHM board thread but I thought I would move the post to its own thread in the BBW board as it fits better here. =)

    it is more common to see curvy models for sure, my guess it is focused on models who were always struggling to stay in that super skinny unnatural category that is not attainable for everyone, decided to eat some food, gained curves, and people like it, surprise ! there are some really beautiful ladies out there showing off real curves and rolls and cellulite, it is a thing of beauty

    I think it's less that models are "deciding to get fat" but rather, with body acceptance/body positivity having a greater spotlight, bigger girls are making a name for themselves in the modeling world. The media is giving more time and space (no pun intended) to these lovely ladies and also the men. Plus, with the additional platforms (facebook, twitter, etc.) there are so many places to see and be seen.

    Ok so what I’m hearing is Baader-Meinhof. This is great. The world is fatter then I imagined.

    No. It's simply a confusing conjunction of either social maturity, better self-esteem, eating binge issues, "iNtUiTiVe eAtInG" , clout-chasing and/or middle age spread.

    That was probably already occuring - a few contempoary details take aside - prior the advent of the Social Media Era. Internet simply rendered it more public.
